Lubuntu Team Expanding: Join Now

Last week Lynxis prepared early test ISO images for Lubuntu, the ubuntu flavour of LXDE. Unexpectedly the Lubuntu public download rush crashed the servers of a Berlin creative technology center “c-base” which hosted the test images. Lynxis rents office space there.

The download problem was quickly resolved and LXDE/Lubuntu is even more famous now in Berlin. Also another group faced growth troubles.

The Lubuntu team which just manages the seed discussed whether to keep the release team open or close the group because that was potentially dangerous. Membership skyrocket to 135 members.

It was decided to keep membership open for now. We are also looking for a new logo for Lubuntu as the deadline for the Karmic release cycle quickly approaches.

Lubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala (Beta) released

The lubuntu project is advancing. lynxis just published a lubuntu test iso based on the seeds by David Sugar and additional patches. It is just 381 MB and a second one only 292 MB.

Please download the image and test it and give feedback:

UPDATE: The interest was huge. We crashed the server of the c-base. Sorry folks, we then provided a download at:, but it was too much traffic too. So, let’s find a solution step by step.
